The Monroe County Outreach gardens have done well this year.  A big thank you to Tina and anyone else who helps for all of your hard work.  At left is a picture of a Monroe County Public Health Nurse picking up a donation from the gardens for seniors who receive homecare and are not able to garden but love fresh produce.  SCICAP outreach also donates produce to the Senior Center Meal Program and for seniors living in Benton Place Apartments in Monroe County.


Monroe County staff was also busy at the Monroe County Fair.  They had activities for kids and made Hawaiian Necklaces and flexible fish.  Information on our many services was available to all fairgoers.

"In collaboration with community partners, the mission of South Central Iowa Community Action Program is to provide advocacy and services for persons striving for economic security while preserving their dignity, and bring about change for the benefit of the people we serve and the community at large.”

"Be the Reason someone smiles today"

On my office wall there are big letters saying, "Be the reason someone Smiles Today". While working at my desk in early December, a fellow came in and said, "I'm here to give you something instead of getting something from you". He handed me a lovely card with the following hand written note: To SCICAP, Thank you for a new furnace! As a veteran now disabled, this is the first help I've had from anybody. You people do good work! Thank you from an Army veteran." I must tell you my eyes watered up a bit.
